A Fresh Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 10, 2013 in Cinema, Star Trek


I doubt this needs much introduction at this point: here’s the latest Star Trek Into Darkness trailer that’s running in front of Oz the Great and Powerful. It looks fantastic, and they’re still keeping Benedict Cumberbatch and his definitely not known, so very secret character to the background. He certainly looks imposing and threatening for the 5 seconds he’s in the trailer, though. It also looks like there will be plenty of falling in this film. Very very fast falling. From space. I must also say, I love the visual look of the first scene shown – I can’t wait to see that on the big screen. Check out the trailer below. Read more…

Fans Remake Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 29, 2013 in Star Trek

Star Trek Into Darkness

Dust Films must have really loved the second Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, because they remade it shot-for-shot. And despite the use of everyday locations, toys, and tiny model cities, you can easily tell what’s going on if you’ve rewatched the second trailer as many times as I have! They also made a comparison video so you can see how close they came with their fanmade version. Plus, the music is recorded from their own vocals. Gotta love those Inception horns! Read more…



No One Man Should Have All That Power

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 26, 2013 in Star Trek, Star Wars


So by now, unless you’re living under the largest and most impenetrable rock, you’ve heard that J.J. Abrams will be directing Disney’s upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. And with one fell swoop, both Star Trek and Star Wars are now ruled by one man. The entirety of nerd culture (well, ok, maybe not) is subject to the whims of Abrams now! Some people are disappointed by this development, others are thrilled, but the overall perception seems to cautious optimism. Let’s face it, Abrams has done an excellent job with Star Trek, and the biggest bullet point you need he lives out every day: he’s a nerd just like us. Read more…

First Look at Klingons in Star Trek Into Darkness?

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 19, 2013 in Star Trek


Here it is, my friends: your first look at the Klingons in Star Trek Into Darkness! And it comes in the form of a comic book cover from IDW for their prequel comic, Countdown to Darkness. There sure does seem to be a whole lot of this “darkness” stuff going around, huh. Looks like all those rumors and leaks have come true. We’ve kind of seen these helmets before in deleted scenes from the first film, but my real question is this: will they have the ridges underneath the helmet as well? Ah, hope I didn’t make the wait for the movie any worse! Star Trek Into Darkness opens May 17th. Read more…

Captain Pike Described A Similar But Different Direction For Star Trek

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 17, 2013 in Star Trek, Television

Captain Pike

As any good Star Trek fan knows, the original captain before James T. Kirk was Captain Christopher Pike. He starred in the failed pilot “The Cage,” which was salvaged for the two-part episode “The Menagerie.” But at the time, it seemed as though actor Jeffrey Hunter would be sticking with the series. And while his vision of what Star Trek would be was somewhat close to what it ultimately turned out to be, there was a key difference about what the show was actually about. Read more…



Is Star Trek Into Darkness Based on Where No Man Has Gone Before?

Is Star Trek Into Darkness Based on Where No Man Has Gone Before?

So I’m watching the latest cut of the official teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness (see below) and it suddenly hits me: I’ve seen this lady before in the Star Trek universe. Sure enough I go back through my stills of Where No Man Has Gone Before which was an early pilot for Star Trek and there she is — Dr. Elizabeth Dehner! There is also a shot earlier in the trailer that reminds of Kirk talking to Lt. Cmdr. Gary Mitchell in the brig: Read more…



Gag Reel from Star Trek: The Next Generation will Make Your Week

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 31, 2012 in Star Trek


This came out a few weeks ago, but it’s finally making the rounds: a gag reel from Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s one of the most enjoyable and silly videos I’ve seen all month, and it’s the perfect way to start off the new year. What a blast to see the entire cast horsing around and having fun making the series. I also find it adorable that Patrick Stewart’s way to deal with corpsing is to hug whatever is closest to him – usually Jonathan Frakes. Watch the entire video below and start your week right!

These Spaceships Are Recycled From Computer Parts

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 11, 2012 in Star Trek, Star Wars

Computer Part USS Enterprise

Do computer parts and spaceships not have enough geek cred for you? Why not combine them? Etsy user Shankalonian makes a variety of objects, mostly bugs, out of old computer parts. But what’s coolest are his recycled versions of famous spaceships, such as the USS Enterprise, a Klingon Bird of Prey, and an X-Wing Fighter. He seems to have sold the Bird of Prey, but the Enterprise, X-Wing, and a whole lot of bugs are still up for grabs if you’re looking for a distinctive holiday gift. The models are both environmentally responsible and incredibly nerdy! Read more…

It’s been done before with The Dark Knight and I Am Legend, and again with The Dark Knight Rises and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. So since it worked out so well for those films, it’s being done yet again with Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. What is it they’re doing, you ask?

Movie News: Star Trek and The Hobbit

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 9, 2012 in Cinema, Star Trek


Two bits of movie news popping up this weekend: first off, J.J. Abrams’ second Star Trek film is slowly coming together, and now we’ve got a solid idea of the title. Multiple sources have rumored that the film will be called Star Trek Into Darkness. No colon? What a bold prospect! With a teaser trailer on the horizon, we should find out for sure soon. On the other side of things – The Hobbit! New pictures of all the characters, mainly the dwarves. I’ve got to say, the costume design is outstanding. Read more…

Star Trek Infinite Space Axed

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Aug 9, 2012 in Star Trek, Videogames

Star Trek Infinite Space 2

Some bad news for Star Trek gamers. Star Trek: Infinite Space, Gameforge’s browser-based starship combat simulator, has been officially cancelled.  In truth, it’s no surprise to anyone, as the developer had been experiencing a number financial setbacks and layoffs over the past year. In order to complete development, Gameforge had been seeking a co-publisher for the title, but according to a recent statement, has finally given up the search. As we had previously reported, the game had been originally scheduled for release in late 2011.

Star Trek TNG in HD Out Now

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 25, 2012 in Star Trek

Star Trek TNG in HD Season 1 Blu-Ray

The first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation in HD should finally be available at store near you. My copy arrived earlier today, and I couldn’t wait to marathon a few of the discs. Of course, watching the first season of Star Trek the Next Generation can almost seem like a chore — the writing wasn’t incredible, the props and costumes needed some work, and the acting left plenty to be desired — so I had to pace myself. I was a bit worried that the experience would be much akin to chewing on a stick of Fruit Stripe gum — you know, ‘oos’ and ‘ahs’ for the first few minutes then suddenly ‘aww’. However, it actually isn’t that bad.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Declares Star Trek’s Enterprise the Best Starship Ever

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 20, 2012 in Fandom, Star Trek

Here a fantastic little video to start your weekend: at San Diego Comic-Con last week, the annual Starship Smackdown was in full swing. All of the starship experts and fans were debating the best starship, when a new challenger stepped up to the plate, and renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson took the mic and delivered the coolest and most passionate argument in favor of Star Trek’s Enterprise I’ve ever heard. I think we might just have a winner!

What’s There For Trekkies at SDCC?

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 10, 2012 in Star Trek


There won’t be an official Star Trek panel at San Diego Comic Con, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of Star Trek-related content this year. CBS is handing out 1701 free Star Trek the Next Generation 25th Anniversary posters throughout the weekend. To find out how to pick one up, you’ll have to swing by their booth (#4129) for more info. They’ll also have collectible postcards available. Alternatively, you can follow the official StarTrek.com twitter feed for updates on when they’ll be handing both the postcards and prints out.

A Preview of William Shatner’s Documentary on Star Trek Fans

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jul 4, 2012 in Star Trek

This is a new trailer for William Shatner’s documentary on Star Trek fandom called “Get a Life”. This film looks quite sweet and touching from the clip. “Get a Life” can be seen on Xbox Live Wednesday July 25, 2012 and on EPIX TV on Saturday July 28, 2012 at 8PM ET.



Star Trek 2 Panel at SDCC? Probably Not

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 13, 2012 in Cinema, Star Trek

Star Trek Panelists Comic-Con 2007

We’ve all been on the edge of our seats, hoping to catch a small glimpse of Bad Robot’s next Star Trek film at San Diego Comic-Con International. Although Prometheus butcher — yeah, I said it — and Star Trek 2 producer Damon Lindelof had stated that they hoped to have something to show us by SDCC,  chances of that happening are now slim to none — the safe bet being none. According to various sources, and subsequently confirmed by TrekMovie, Abrams and company have decided to wait until they’ve polished their project a bit more before showing it off to fans. It’ll be interesting to see if they opt instead for a WonderCon panel next year, but who knows. Abrams could just want to keep things under wraps for the foreseeable future. Read more…

Redshirts Audiobook Feat. Wil Wheaton

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 7, 2012 in Fandom, Star Trek

Redshirts cover (small)

If you’ve ever watched an episode of Star Trek and found yourself wondering why anyone would ever agree to be on an away team, let alone wear a red uniform, then this book is for you. Author John Scalzi does a fantastic job of parodying the genre we’ve all grown to love with his latest novel Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas. While it can’t outright label itself a Trek novel, the inspiration for the novel remains apparent throughout, and Scalzi manages to keep the novel entertaining by referencing everything you’d expect from such a novel — everything from away team selection, comic conventions, ridiculous aliens, and even the convoluted rules surrounding time travel.  Furthermore, the audiobook edition is read by none other than Wesley Crusher himself, Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Wil Wheaton. His narration is spot on, so don’t expect to nod off while listening. Both the novel and audiobook should be available at your local book store, or amazon.com, however you can also pick up the audiobook  via Audible.com.

The Outer Light: The Latest Chapter

The latest chapter of The Outer Light has just been posted at theouterlight.com. For those of you Star Trek fans not in the know The Outer Light is a wonderfully done graphic novel sequel to the ST:TNG episode The Inner Light and is well worth checking out (previous chapters are posted).


Save Big on Star Trek TNG in HD

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 4, 2012 in Star Trek

Star Trek The Next Generation Season one Blu-Ray HD

For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to see Star Trek: The Next Generation receive its much-needed facelift, and after picking up a copy of Star Trek: The Next Generation -The Next Level Blu-ray sampler earlier this year, I’ve become conflicted. Not because I don’t want them to finish remastering the series, but because I honestly loathed the first two seasons — at least, in comparison to the series as a whole, which I found brilliant. The writing was often sub-par, the acting absolutely atrocious at times, and the visuals (props, sets, costumes) — yikes, do we really need to see those in high definition? Read more…
